[QUOTE]Originally posted by NaturalResources: [QB] Well the dating seems to work... According to historians, the Anasazi people seemed to disappear around the early 1300's which is roughly the same time the Aztecs claim to have left Aztlan. Also, historians suggest the main reason for the decline of the Anasazi was an extreme prolonged drought. This most certainly would have affected the supply of fresh water on Antelope Island and provided a reason for a massive migration to the south, where conditions were much better. Another thing to consider, according to the Aztec creation myth, the Aztec people originally came forth from seven caves before they built Aztlan and there just so happen to be caves on some of the islands in the Great Salt Lake. I believe there is an archaeological site on Antelope island, and there are several more along the ancient shores of the Great Salt Lake, which prior to the drought in the 1300's was much higher than it is today (thus the lake waters prior to the drought would not have been as salty). However, I believe these sites date much earlier than the 14th century, though this is something I might look into further. I haven't focused too much in this area, because the intent of my research is to discover where Andre Thevet got his information for his 1575 map, not to discover the location of Aztlan, Cibola or Atlantis. Also, I am a bit hesitant because the "history" of Aztlan, Cibola and Atlantis are shrouded in so much mystery, myth and fantasy. This is something I would like to avoid in my work because I don't want to be associated with the "lunatic fringe". [/QB][/QUOTE]
